TRAPEZE PERFORMANCE

ATHENS, GA

OCT 19-21, 2018

Y'all, our own Claire Campbell has been hard at work composing the original score for Canopy's thrilling trapeze performance. The show is called MYSTIC and runs from OCT 19 - 21 at Canopy Studio in Athens, GA. BUY TICKETS NOW!!! There are 5 showtimes and tickets usually sell out for these events as seating is limited. They've created a little perch for Claire Campbell where she'll be sitting surrounded by amplifiers and all my musical instruments. The trapeze artists will be on every possible apparatus, including fabrics, web, and a giant swinging steel pentagram. \~~/

HAPPY FACE

Y’all!  We composed all of the music for an episodic podcast about the infamous Happy Face Killer.  The score will feature instrumental versions of songs from our previous albums, as well as plenty of unreleased material that we are very excited about. The first installment drops on Sept 28th!  In the meantime, here’s a link to the trailer…
